The start of summer is right around the corner, and it is looking very different from anything we have experienced in the past. One major shift is no in-person summer camp.
Camp 787 is a summer day camp started by 4th grade teacher Kate Sommerville and administrator Danielle Bryant. The initial vision for Camp 787 was to experience Austin as our classroom through thematic weeks of exploration with new field trips each day. Due to the COVID-19 crisis, Camp 787 will be offering virtual camp this summer for students entering 4th, 5th, and 6th grade in the 2020-2021 school year! (Good news for folks outside of Austin, Texas!)
Virtual camp will include daily Morning Meeting, STEM activities, lunch check-ins, arts & crafts lessons, physical fitness, and a weekly read aloud book study. All materials for these activities are provided in each camper's weekly camp kit!
Weekly camp kits will contain all materials for STEM activities, arts & crafts, and our weekly read aloud. Camp kits will be distributed through contact-less pick up at various, set locations around Austin on Sundays prior to camp from 4-5pm.
Not in the Austin area? Sign up with a group of at least five friends one full week before the desired week of camp, and we will ship materials to one point of contact! Please send us an email if this is something you plan on doing, so we can prepare materials with plenty of time for shipping.
Camp 787 will operate Monday-Friday from June 1st - July 24th from 9:00 a.m.-3:30 p.m. Camp is $150/week per child with invoices sent in two week increments.

We are eager to bring meaningful, engaging, and fun activities to as many children as possible to have a summer of purpose during these uncertain times.
